When a Journalist asked Karan Johar, who is Karan's best buddy, on the promotion of Student of The Year. Karan surprised everybody by saying, "There are old friends who have gone beyond the 'friendship' tag. They are family now. My childhood friend Apoorva Mehta, who is the CEO of my company, is my best friend. He's been with me for the past 30 years. We have been together from our schooldays, college days and even work together. He is my best friend."
Talking about Shahrukh Khan Karan Johar added, "Nahi, Shahrukh toh mere buddy nahi hain, balki mere bade bhai hain. (No, Shahrukh is not my buddy. In fact, he is like my big brother.) I never called him my buddy. Even today when Shahrukh enters a room, I stand up to give him respect. So SRK is not my best friend but Apoorva, who heads my company, is."
Well, we pray this brotherhood to last for a lifetime!
